    I was trying to make my surfing anonymous, trying to make that with Firefox settings, installed some programs etc. On the end, I quit that, because I didnt't like it. I backed Firefox settings to normal, deleted those two programs, as I know I backuped everything to be normal.

    I even deleted Tor and Vidalia that I installed week ago.

    But it seems I screwed something. Now any software I have on my PC that require Internet connection doesn't work.

    FriendBlasterPro, Forum Submitter, Tubeinator.... none. They just can't connect. I am browsing net normally, but those softwares can't.

    Any idea what get wrong ?

    That's not necessarily the case.

    OP, what control panel settings did you change?

    Maybe your proxy settings.

    In IE:
    tools > internet options > connections > LAN settings > UNCHECK 'use a proxy server...'

    In FF3:
    tools > options > advanced > network > settings... > turn off proxy



    Also...

    Go to control panel > network connections > right click on your connection > properties > double click on 'internet protocol' > check 'obtain ip automatically' is set, also 'obtain DNS automatically' is set.

    This happened to me a few weeks ago. I was doing the exact same thing with firefox. After several phone calls to ISP, Modem support and Wireless Network support, I discovered that it was an update of ZoneAlarm that didn't work with the latest windows update.

    If you are running a firewall, (even the windows one) it might be advisable to deactivate it and restart computer just to test if this is the problem.

    In this situation you might try running a few commands, type each command on a new line.

    Open the command prompt,

    Start > Run > type in "cmd" > Press OK

    netsh int ip reset log.txt
    netsh int ip delete arpcache
    netsh winsock reset all

    Reboot
